This is getting better and better. I absolutely love that idea :). Will 
there be a delay, or an option for delay, for when the command is 
executed? It doesn't always make sense to immediately run a command on 
"document changed".

That feature would go really well with inline marks, if TextMate would 
have that feature [1]. It can be a bit too much "in your face" to open a 
new window with information just by typing in the document. The current 
gutter marks require one to click on the mark to display the message.

I actually implemented something similar to on "document changed" 
directly in TextMate. It was hardcoded to run Rubocop. Worked really 
well together with the inline marks. The only problem was that I had no 
way to hide an inline mark, and when basically all lines have a 
violation it got a bit too much. It's also a bit annoying to have a fork 
to keep up to date.
